Verfassungsblog: Discussion of ECtHR Judgment “Fedotova v Russia”

ZUZANA VIKARSKÁ discusses the ECtHR’s ruling in Fedotova v Russia on the legal recognition and protection of same-sex couples. She criticises the decision for creating a new right and for being the most political ruling ever. She also wonders what the Russian judge is still doing on the bench.

EDUARDO GILL-PEDRO is not convinced by Vikarská’s finding that a new right has been created. Gill-Pedro agrees with her that the decision is of great political importance, but believes that it was the right one to make.
